I did put this on the calendar.  I am working on an email.  Or at least I asked Fred Booth for help doing that.   Here is the link.

Is there any way to send a group message to invite others?
Maybe just the Texas group due to distance.

Ride safe, Ted

Not very often something pops up in my own back yard. I'm in. Anyone interested in doing the fabled river road afterwards,  let me know. There are some nice short loops available out around Canyon Lake. We have been blessed with a little color in the foliage this year and the Cypress trees are awesome along the Guadalupe right now.

I looked and was able to find the listing of SC members in COGMOS, but did not see a way to send a group email without manually creating one, myself.  However, I did receive an email regarding the RTE from Bob Smith.  Perhaps he figured it out.   :beerchug:

Fred helped... or actually did all the work.  I just provided the wording.   Thanks Fred.
 I hope that Leslie and I can make it there.  It is looking good so far.

Just for your information.  There is now a Blacks BBQ as well as a Rudy's withing a mile of each other on 337 loop. Blacks took over the old Rudy's when they built a new place up the street.

I recieved an invite email but will not be able to attend. My front wheel bearings have decided it is time to die.

I'll get a RTE in NTX for later in Jan. planned soon. There's a couple of new places that I think everyone will like. Maybe tie this in with an Illinois Bend or Carpenter Bridge ride.

Not trying to steal riders from Jeff's rides, but NTX is a long way from New Braunfels.

The motorcycle show is Jan 3 - 5 we will probably be coming up to Dallas for that.  How much further north of Dallas are you going ?

Both those spots are on the Red River. That makes it easy for folks on either side of the Metroplex to get out of town on back roads.

I went to the Motorcycle Show last year. . . . . . waste of money for Pamela and I.

It has definitely jumped the shark, but don't let that stop anyone else from going, that is just my opinion after going to to them for decades.

I agree the show is not very good. Neither was the Minnesota show. We would pick a spot near the show to meet for lunch. This allowed people to get together if they were going to the show or not. Don't know if that is possible at the Dallas show.

For those of you who have been to many m/c shows over the years and think the current version is a letdown.  It may be...

But my first m/c show was last year and I had a real hoot there!  I can't wait to go back.  I get it, it may be scaled back from years prior, but for anybody who hasn't been before, it's well worth the day!

We got back before dark also. Just under 400 miles round trip. I believe we had 15 attendees both new and old faces. Tentative plans to go somewhere again January or February.
Thanks everyone for attending.

This would be more than a day ride except for locals but it appears as an interesting event. Saturday Feb 22.
